Die Zauberflöte

This summer we'll be at Glyndebourne for Mozart's Die Zauberflöte and Giulio Cesare by Handel.
Lewes, Glyndebourne More Info

The first of our two appearances at Glyndebourne this year. Franco-Canadian director-designer duo Barbe & Doucet directs Glyndebourne’s returning opera Die Zauberflöte and German conductor Constantin Trinks makes his Festival debut with an exciting young cast.

Unforgettable characters search for love and truth in this playful reimagining of Mozart’s classic fairytale. Be transported by hand-drawn illustrations and elaborate puppetry, as well as some of the best music Mozart ever composed.

When Prince Tamino sees the beautiful Pamina he falls instantly in love. But she has been kidnapped by Sarastro, so with the help of bird-catcher Papageno he sets out on a quest to find her. Searching for love, Tamino finds much more than he bargained for. Faced with a decision he must choose between darkness and light, order and chaos, duty and desire. Which will it be?
